Ekso Bionics' exoskeleton used to let paraplegics walk (video)

It’s not just nuclear-powered super soldiers who will use exoskeletons – it can also be used to help those with physical disabilities. The Kessler Foundation grabbed one of Ekso Bionics’ Ekso units and gave six people with severe spinal injuries, including a tetraplegic, the chance to walk. It’s part of a trial study to examine the effects of walking for wheelchair-users, to see if it’s better for their overall health or if it could contribute to their rehabilitation. A wider study will begin early next year with the hope of expanding use of the gear to domestic situations in the future. After the break we’ve got video of the people walking for the first time since their injuries and it’s hard not to find yourself feeling a little emotional at the sight of it. Read more

#Exoskeletons help people with #CerebralPalsy - Bulea and his team studied seven children with cerebral palsy over a period of six clinic visits. At each visit, the child would walk with the exoskeleton while researchers studied his or her gait. The results were promising, Bulea says. Six out of the seven children had improvements in knee extension similar to or greater than those seen with surgery, one of the conventional treatments for crouch gait. The nature of the surgery depends on the exact cause of the crouch gait in the particular child, but often involves lengthening contracted muscles and tendons. The children also maintained muscle activity, which means they were still relying on their own strength and not just leaning on the suit.
“That’s a really encouraging sign that over long-term use, this brace might be a viable way to change posture, but also to train and exercise muscles,” Bulea says. The research was published in the journal Science Translational Medicine.

Lowe’s Prototype Exoskeletons Give Warehouse Workers a Boost

Hardware chain Lowe’s is outfitting employees with a simple exoskeleton to help them on the job. The company has partnered with Virginia Tech to develop the technology, which makes lifting and moving heavy objects easier. The non-motorized exoskeletons are worn like a harness, with carbon fiber rods acting as artificial tendons — bending when the wearer squats, and springing back when they stand up.

Lowe’s has issued four of the custom-built suits to employees at a store in Christiansburg, Virginia. The equipment has been in use for over a month and the company says early feedback is extremely positive. “[Employees] wear it all day, it’s very comfortable, and it makes their job easier,” says Nel, adding that Lowe’s is working with scientists from Virginia Tech to conduct a proper survey of the technology’s usefulness. “It’s early days, but we’re doing some major studies,” he says.
